        I know isn't it brilliant Tetters.. I don't know but I suppose you do need to live in a windy place for best effect but I think if you watch it enough you may see a way to doing it.. Not sure but someone managed it don't see why you couldn't do it.. :thumbsup:

                You can buy the dummies anywhere. I had one pinned over my dining room door. I'm not if that would be strong enough to take the battering though.

                    I was quite proud of my efforts, but obviously, there are new heights to aspire to!;) Pascal and Henri have done a good job of keeping the deer at bay, but I reckon that the grim reaper will see off the wild boar too :cool:DSCF0007.JPGHenri II.JPG
